Ex-Senior Justice Official Asks Homeland Security to Ban Abbas from US

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

A former Department of Justice director who was behind the decision to bar Kurt Waldheim from entering the United States in 1987 has asked Homeland to Security to keep Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas out of the country under the Immigration and Nationality Act, which bars entry into the U.S. of aliens who incite terrorist activity or endorse or espouse terrorist activity.

New York Attorney Neal M. Sher, former Director of the Office of Special Investigations in the Justice Department, wrote Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last week to bar Abbas on behalf of 140 victims and family members of the terror attack on Fort Hood, Texas five years ago this month.

“My clients know painfully well the deadly consequences of such incitements and endorsements” as those who radicalized the Fort Hood murderer, Nidal Hasan, Sher wrote.

The attorney reminded Homeland Security that as a Justice Dept. official, he “was responsible for the 1987 decision to bar entry to the U.S. of Kurt Waldheim, then the President of Austria,” based on Waldheim’s assistance or participation in Nazi persecutions.

Sher detailed the “abundance of publicly available evidence” showing that “Abbas (1) personally incited terrorist activity and (2) used his position of prominence to endorse terror activity.”

The Zionist Organization of American (ZOA) issued a statement endorsing and supporting Sher’s letter.

Congress has determined that some individuals should not be allowed entry into the United States for reasons that can be found in section 212, codified as Title 8 of the U.S. Code, section 1182, which states:

Terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds (TRIG), exclude persons who have participated in various kinds of activity, including activity that is generally illegal and/or violent. The grounds for inadmissibility include, but are not limited to, individuals who:

•Incited terrorist activity with intent to cause serious bodily harm or death;

•Are representatives or current members of a terrorist organization;

•Endorsed or espoused terrorist activity;

Sher detailed evidence that “ranking officials of the PA and Fatah, over whom Abbas has control and for whom he must be held responsible, have engaged in a widespread, deliberate campaign to incite and endorse terrorism.”

He noted:

Abbas publicly glorified  the perpetrator of the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick – an American – declaring the perpetrator a ‘martyr’ and in doing so endorsed a clear act of terror….

Abbas publicly urged ‘that Palestinian Arabs’ prevent Jews from entering the Temple Mount ‘by all means necessary,’ an unambiguous call for violence….

A close adviser to Abbas proclaimed on the PA’s official Facebook page that the convicted terrorist who, in October, rammed his car into a light-rail station in Jerusalem, killing a three-month old American infant and wounding several other U.S. citizens and Israelis, “was a ‘martyr’ and worthy of honor….

After additional incidents where vehicles were used as weapons of terror, official PA outlets incited Palestinians to show their anger by ‘running over Israelis.’

Similarly, in a clear-cut example of incitement to and endorsement of terrorism, the PA Facebook page posted ugly depictions of the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped and murdered in June of this year. One of the victims was an American. The kidnappers and murdered were praised, honored and glorified, leaving no doubt that their conduct should be emulated.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) issued a statement endorsing and supporting Sher’s letter.

ZOA president Morton A. Klein stated, “It is time for our country to send the clear  message to Mahmoud Abbas that, under U.S. law, he is not eligible to enter the U.S. when he, his partners and subordinates regularly incite a terror campaign against Jews in Israel.

Klein pointed out several examples, several of which have been noted by  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in criticism of Abbas:

Abbas’ PA regularly holds parades and ceremonies glorifying deceased terrorists, and names streets, schools and sports teams in their honor.

Large posters of these terrorists are on display in PA schools, universities and public places, honoring these murderers instead of condemning them.

The PA pays pensions to suicide bombers and Jew-killing terrorists. The greater the number of Jews murdered, the higher the pension.

And rather than distance itself as much as possible from Hamas, Abbas’ PA embraced this U.S.-designated terrorist group, whose charter calls for the murder of Jews and the destruction of Israel.

Kerry last week said the barbaric murders of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue was ‘an act of pure terror,’ and Klein noted he condemned it as ‘a pure result of incitement, of calls for days of rage.

“The ongoing incitement by Abbas and others surely led to the savage, horrific murders,” Klein said. “Mahmoud Abbas is not a leader who is trying to calm tensions and encourage peace with the Jewish State of Israel.  He is leading a campaign of incitement and terrorism against Jews.  The U.S. should make it clear that based on his irresponsible and unacceptable conduct, which is ongoing and well-documented, he is ineligible under U.S. law to enter our country.”

 

‘EU Must Condition Aid to PA on End of Incitement’

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

The European Jewish Congress has called on European leaders to condition future aid and cooperation between the European Union and the Palestinians on the end of rampant incitement against Israel and Jews in the Palestinian Authority in the wake of the terror attack against worshipers in a synagogue in Jerusalem this morning.

“The European Union, as was seen in the Foreign Ministers statement yesterday, has placed too much focus on Israeli actions and have completely ignored far more important issues like incessant Palestinian incitement which directly leads to massacres like the one we saw at the synagogue this morning and over the last couple of weeks,” Dr. Moshe Kantor, EJC president said.

“The Europeans have an ability to influence and a tool with which to pressure the Palestinians to end the daily incitement emanating from its leaders, education system, media and religious institutions, and that is the financial assistance which is helping aid this system,” he added.

“There should be a massive rethink in Europe about the best way to achieve true peace, because while there has been an obsessive focus on settlement building, incitement to hatred and violence, Anti-Semitism and religious hatred, is by far the greatest obstacle to any lasting peace. The Europeans should demand that this ends immediately and threaten to withdraw all aid and cooperation until it does, before we see more massacres like the one this morning in Jerusalem….

“By ignoring Palestinian incitement to hatred and violence. the international community has allowed for the creation of a culture of immunity and impunity in the Palestinian Authority and its official institutions.”

“Ignoring all Palestinian offenses and focusing only on Israel’s perceived infractions is a soft bigotry of low expectations and should end immediately.”

Kerry Calls Synagogue Massacre ‘Pure Terror’

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the Arab murders of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning and labeled it an “act of pure terror and senseless brutality.”

Speaking in London, Kerry told reporters, “This morning in Jerusalem Palestinians attacked Jews who were praying in a synagogue.

“People who have come to worship God in a sanctuary of a synagogue were… murdered in a holy place in an act of pure terror and senseless brutality and murder.”

Interestingly, The New York Times referred to the terrorists as “assailants” and in the same article called the shooting of Temple Activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick last month an “episode.”

Palestinian Authority Media Encouraged Revenge for Suicide

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Palestinian Authority media on Monday incited Arabs to murder Jews in revenge for what they still claim was the ”execution by settlers” of an eastern Jerusalem driver who according to all experts committed suicide.

Even an Arab forensic expert said the bus driver took his own life, but the man’s family and several Palestinian Authority media outlets not only refused to accept the evidence but blamed Jews for allegedly murdering him.

Tuesday’s slaughter of Jews in the heart of the quiet Haredi neighborhood of Har Nof in Jerusalem apparently was well-planned. It also brought an immediate joyous response from Hamas. The terrorist organization declared that the massacre was a “natural reaction” to the death of the bus driver.

Jerusalem Arabs Riot against Israel because Arab Bus Driver Hanged Himself

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Jerusalem Arab rioters hurled firebombs and rocks at police Sunday night and Monday to protest an almost certain suicide of an Arab bus driver who Palestinian Authority propagandists said was executed: by “settlers.”

One child was lightly wounded Monday morning by a rock, but no injuries were reported among the police officers who had to deal with more violence by Arabs who are running out of excuses for their addiction to rage.

The driver was 32-year-old Yousef al-Ramouri, a driver for the Egged bus company, which is one of the most desired positions for a worker because of its generous benefits.

He was found hanged from his bow tie inside the bus he was driving in the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Givat Shaul in Jerusalem. Officials said there were no signs of violence on his body.

But that is not the way Palestinian Authority and leftist media reported the tragic death. The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency quoted witnesses that they saw the “execution” of al-Ramouri at the hands of those fanatic settlers.

So now al-Ramouri is a martyr.

The International Middle East Media center, which claims “to provide independent media coverage of Israel-Palestine., quoted the Arabs48 website as reporting that “Palestinian media sources in Jerusalem said signs of strangulation were apparent on Ramouri’s neck, in addition to signs of violence on his body.”

That is all rioters needed to boil their blood and look for blood by picking up rocks and fixing some Molotov cocktails to throw at police in at least three predominantly Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem.

So let’s get this straight.

According to the Arab narrative settlers killed the bus driver. How do they know the supposed killers were “settlers” and not just ordinary Jews, maybe a tourist from Miami?

That one is easy. All Jews in Israel are settlers because all of Israel belongs to Palestine, although that leaves open a small question of why Mahmoud Abba wants border based only on the Temporary Armistice Lines of 1949.

That question also is easy to answer.

His proposed borders are conditioned on Israel’s accepting a few million Arabs to come from Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and maybe from South and North America because their great-grandparents or even their great-great-grandparents lived in Israel once upon a time. After that, the Arabs take over Israel and all Jews become settlers.

So the next question is, “How did the settlers ‘execute’ the driver?”

They must have pounced on him, strangled him and then decided to hang him by his bow tie so it would look like a suicide.

And there you have in a nutshell how the Arab world has programmed the robots in the U.S. State Dept., the United Nations and the European Union to blame Israel and the Jews for anything bad that happens to an Arab.

Radical Israeli Islamic Preacher Convicted – Again

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A Jerusalem Court has accepted a government appeal and convicted anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist Israeli Arab Raad Salah of racial incitement.

He is about to be sentenced to a lengthy term in jail for the umpteenth time, and maybe the judicial system finally will not be in such a rush to release him from his cell.

He was sentenced last March to eight months in prison by the lower court in Jerusalem after being convicted for incitement to violence but being acquitted on a charge of racist incitement in Jerusalem in 2007 when he said “the best moments in our fate are when we meet God as martyrs for Al Aqsa.”

In other words, “Get ourselves killed while attacking Jews on the Temple Mount.”

The government appealed the acquittal and won a conviction in the higher court, which ordered the lower court to sentence Salah next month.

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz accused the Islamic Movement on Sunday of contributing to the escalation of violence on the Temple Mount and in Jerusalem.

Salah was jailed in 2010 for five months for spitting at an Israeli police officer.

Netanyahu Blames Jerusalem Terror on Abbas Incitement, Islamic Radicalism

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today blamed Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for the terror attack in Jerusalem that left one dead and more than a dozen injured.

Netanyahu placed responsibility for incitement that led to the attack by a Hamas operative who lived in Jerusalem’s northern neighborhood of Shuafat squarely with Abbas.

It was Abbas, he said, who was responsible for “the growing incitement” seen in recent days.

Abbas, “who sent a condolence letter to the family of [Yehudah] Glick’s [shooter] and who has tried to prevent Jews from going up to the Temple Mount.

“The vehicular terror attack today in Jerusalem is the direct result of incitement by Abu Mazen [Abbas] and his partner Hamas,” the prime minister stated flatly.

Netanyahu noted that the “rising tide of Islamic extremism and radicalism that is sweeping all across the Middle East and beyond” was affecting Israel’s Arab population as well – and would cost the Jewish State. But although he acknowledged that Israeli is in “a prolonged battle for Jerusalem,” as he politely phrased it, he added, “I have no doubt that we will win it. We are employing all the necessary powers to restore quiet and security to the city.

“True peace will come when the squares in Ramallah and Gaza will be filled with demonstrators calling for a halt to terrorism. Peace will come when Iran will stop calling ‘death to Israel’ and when Abu Mazen no longer says that Jews are defiled and stops embracing their killers,” Netanyahu said.

But until then, “There has been no change in Palestinian society toward acceptance of the Jewish people’s right to its own state.”
